Love this place

I do most of my grocery shopping here, they have a lot of vegan products and if they don't have it they go out of their way to get it. The prices are way better than other health food store I've been to, maybe 'cause they sell a lot...nbot sure, but I like it!

The Best Health Food Market

Posted on 02 / 15 / 2012

I had read about this place on happycow, and here's my Mother's Market and Kitchen review.

First impression: I was very surprised to see how BIG this store is, compared to the previous 3 Mother's Markets stores I've visited. It's the size of a large supermarket.

Walking up and down the isles, I was able to find a wide range of products, essentially EVERYTHING a health-conscious person and a vegetarian/vegan can ask for.

The store even offers some alternative natural products that Whole Foods Market doesn't carry. For instance, Mother's offers 2 additional types of natural diapers that I did not see at Whole Foods.

The store offers an extensive bulk section, large supplements department, fresh organic and farmers produce, cereals, snacks, raw food, grocery, frozen and chilled food, and lots more. In addition, there is a separate area dedicated to their kitchen service, including a large hot foods bar, salad bar, a mostly vegetarian deli (except for tuna), a pizza bar, burritos/tacos bar, and juice bar.

The staff told me that the owners are vegetarians and that the store is mostly vegetarian except for a few frozen poultry products. They don't even sell alcohol (not now anyway) because the owners believe in the "health food store" principle.

The prices were very reasonable and cheaper than Whole Foods.

This location is not as charming as the other smaller locations due to its massive size, it's spectacular and a shopper's paradise. I wish for a Mother's Market everywhere!

What can I say about this place except that I love love it! There are so many products to choose from and they have an excellent variety of vegan prodcuts too. The staff there are SUPER friendly! Their food court is awesome-o! If you haven't been there you must go. They have a chain of stores. Trust and believe there is a good reason for that.

I LOVE this place. The food bar has a huge variety of delicious food. I eat here at least once a week on my lunch break, and always have a hard time deciding between all the great choices of things to eat.

Pros: Variety, Good Food
Cons: Not much Seating
